Small pc help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am having a question to the pc experts, which do you think is better, having a ddr2-1066mhz 2x2 gb with an intel q9400 or having ddr3-1333mhz 2x2 gb with an amd athlon II x2 260

The core 2 is faster despite the memory.

You could justify getting the Athlon with the excuse that you'll upgrade to a Phenom II X6 later in time, but you'd also have to mind the power supply that you're getting with the rig because those CPUs are very power hungry.

 

Not considering upgrades, a quad core CPU vs a dual core CPU from that era comes out way in favor of the quad core, bar none.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Then my other question would be, which "cheap" cpu do you recommend (amd) and if possible, with which motherboard do you recommend it. Ty for your answer

Cheap is relative, and it really depends on what this CPU is being used for. Although, when looking at older CPUs, specifically around this era, early core i3 and i5 models are usually much better choices all around, so look for dual and quad cores for LGA 1156, and whatever cheap motherboard you can get.
